I have started the restoration of my 31’ 1974 Airstream, and will keep people up to date on the hows whys and whats of the project. The project is being used in various ways as research for a architectural teaching and personal scholarship.
Few recent items are as iconic as an airstream travel trailer. Unique in their construction, they offer cues to opportunities for compact domestic spaces. For this project components of the renovation will be looked at to optimize areas of research in sustainable materials and systems, digital modeling and fabrication.
For you non- architectural types, I hope to provide some fun images, and to share my airstream restoration knowledge, as so much information has been shared out in forums and webpages.
